TouchStar Expands Fuel Automation Solutions into SE Asia Market
Tulsa, OK – May 15, 2014. TouchStar™, a multinational provider of logistics and mobility software solutions, has expanded its customer base into SE Asia after winning a new aviation refueling customer at a major international airport in Thailand. TouchStar will provide its aviation fueling and management applications AvPac and AvManager to automate the dispatch and management of fuel trucks at the airport.
“This is an important win for TouchStar as it identifies the growing economies in Asia and the opportunity to provide mobility solutions to business that historically would have taken on additional staff. We see this whole market as a major growth area for TouchStar as we introduce new products and our cloud offerings,” said Mark Culverson, TouchStar General Manager, APAC.
TouchStar’s aviation refueling automation solutions enable refuellers to eliminate paper processes and manage delivery tickets and invoices on a handheld device, while automatically monitoring product transfers, fuel volume, and vehicle location in the field. Data is communicated directly to dispatchers and back office systems through the application, allowing for improved driver and fleet utilization, and subsequently the efficiency of the administrative team.
In addition to its aviation refueling solutions, TouchStar provides fuel suppliers and distributors with solutions to automate and improve the distribution of their fuel, heating oil, and lubricant products.
“Some of the major concerns we’re hearing from fuel distributors in the Southeastern Asia market is the security of their trucks and how can they ensure the correct amount of product is being delivered to their customers,” said Culverson. “Our automation solutions will provide the peace of mind that they need, while improving driver efficiency and the accuracy of daily reporting.”
